Life must provide a space of liberty, of silence, in which possibilities are allowed to surface and new choices become manifest. Thomas Merton
What I wear is pants. What I do is live. How I pray is breathe. Thomas Merton
Waking each morning, ex-
pelled from my space,
else has taken my place!
So rising to join in the common fray
compelled through the breathless, common day;
and I choose,
and I breathe,
and I pray.
